    We Went To The "Friends" Pop-Up And Could It BE Any More Perfect?!

    We got to PI-VOT!

    Hi, we're Jen, Nora, and Lauren and could we BE more excited to tell you about our day at the Friends pop-up in NYC?

    BuzzFeed

    ICYMI, there's a pop-up in SoHo commemorating the 25th Anniversary of Friends. It's a fun mixture of artifacts from the show that make it basically the Louvre of the Friends fandom, as well as cool photo opps and activations throughout.

    Therefore, this will now be known as "The One With the BuzzFeed Post." Sorry, had to.

    Okay, onto the good stuff, here's absolutely everything that happened:

    1. We walked in, and we were instantly greeted with giant pics of iconic moments in Friends history.

    BuzzFeed

    Here we are doing our best Joey, Ross, and Chandler impressions.

    2. As we continued on, there was memorabilia and Friends quotes all over the walls — like this blown-up ticket from the first-ever live taping of the show, back when it was titled Friends Like Us.

    3. Our first photo opp was with the iconic umbrellas in front of the fountain, essentially recreating the opening credits.

    BuzzFeed

    *clap, clap, clap, clap*

    4. We got to check out ~actual~ props from the show, like Ross' Science Boy comic from Season 9...

    5. ...and his Spudnik helmet from Season 8:

    6. Speaking of Ross, we got the opportunity to do our very own PI-VOT!!!!

    BuzzFeed

    SHUT UP...SHUT UP...SHUT UP!!!!

    Warner Bros.

    7. Next stop? The front door of Monica and Rachel's apartment.

    BuzzFeed

    *extreme Monica shouting off the balcony voice*: "Apartment 20! Apartment 20!"

    8. But it was honestly even cooler from the back, where we recreated THAT legendary Thanksgiving moment from Season 10.

    BuzzFeed, Warner Bros.

    9. All throughout the pop-up, there were little tributes to the hair, costumes, and props from the show...

    BuzzFeed

    I cannot stress how much I need that poster in my apartment.

    10. ...seriously, there were SO many great props! Like Rachel's 18-page (front and back!) letter to Ross from Season 4...

    BuzzFeed, Warner Bros.

    11. ...and THE LIST of "The One With The List" from Season 2 fame:

    I'll never get over "she's not Rachem."

    12. But the funniest parts of the pop-up were when we got to pull a Monica and pose with these turkeys on our heads...

    BuzzFeed, Warner Bros.

    13. ...and when we got to be Joey wearing Chandler's clothes. Could I BE wearing any more clothes?

    BuzzFeed, Warner Bros.

    14. As we continued on our journey, we made it to Chandler and Joey's apartment...yes, the dog sculpture made it, too!

    BuzzFeed

    15. We even got to relax in the Barcaloungers!

    BuzzFeed

    Us, basically:

    Warner Bros.

    16. The foosball table was there, but don't worry — the chick and the duck were NOT stuck inside.

    BuzzFeed, Warner Bros.

    17. You know who else was there? GLYNNIS!

    BuzzFeed, Warner Bros.

    18. And, another round of EVEN MORE AMAZING PROPS!

    BuzzFeed

    19. Finally, after getting our fill of amazing nostalgia, we ended the day where we hoped we would, right in Central Perk!

    BuzzFeed

    Cheers to 25 years!
